Park will be playing the character of Dr. Stephen Shin. In the comics, Dr. Shin is a friend of the young Arthur Curry (Aquaman) who helps him master his powers. But later, Shin attempts to kill Curry when he refuses to divulge information about Atlantis–Aquaman’s underwater homeward.
It’s unclear what specific function the character will play in the film version. This is Park’s second superhero movie coming out this year. He also appears in Marvel’s summer release ANT-MAN & WASP.
